SOHO Notes is memory hungry

(this post is part of my ongoing search for the perfect information manager on mac)

Sorry if that’s old news, but as much as I like SOHO Notes‘ concept and execution, I have to admit that it’s VERY resource-intensive. I only have something like 70 notes (with a few PDFs sprinkled through), and launching and browsing are already really slow (on a G4 powerbook with 1 gig of RAM). At the same time, the app eats nearly 94 MB of memory — PLUS ~40 MB used by the OpenBase process… That’s almost 140 MB to manage less than a hundred notes. Not efficient. By comparison, Apple Mail is a super-lean and mean machine.

Meanwhile, under the same conditions, Yojimbo is well below the 30 MB threshold and feels extremely snappy. The Bare Bones guys must be doing something right.
